Been a while since I last posted here. What can I say, been busy? Even during COVID and such, I was a bit caught up in work and such.
Well, here is a good reason to bring y’all up to date. Bottom line, I had a stroke.
I think the term is “left side cerebrum hemorrhagic stroke”. Basically, its what happens when a vessel bursts in your brain, and dumps a ton of blood on your body, flooding that hemisphere.
Funny thing, most strokes you are asleep for. No warning given. And when you live alone, no notice while you sleep thru 24 hours of it. Fun.
It happened mid-May. It’s been three weeks now, I’ve been having some memory issues and some severe movement issues. You think that would be obvious from, like, that it was a stroke, but it’s sort of like having your whole body go numb.
Nevertheless, after 3 weeks in recovery, and having gone from a bag of meat to a functional human being again, I’m doing okay.
Anyway, I’m headed home tomorrow, which is the first step of putting life back together.
I still hope to be at WCUS in September, depending on whether or not I’m fully walking again by then.
